This maid wants a monthly food allowance.

I have recently interviewed a Filipino maid Nida and I like her very much. She has asked me for a monthly food allowance. I am not sure about the practice here and I have received conflicting advice. Most of my local friends tell me that it is not necessary to give the maid a food allowance. Among my fellow expats here in Singapore, the opinion is divided.

What is your opinion?
